9 Engagement Ring Trends You’ll See in 2021

Whether you’re choosing your own ring or looking for proposal inspiration, we will help lead you in choosing the perfect on-trend ring. Just like wedding dresses, ring trends change and if you’re into being at the forefront, check out our list below of the current and upcoming engagement ring trends for 2021. From oval diamonds to blue gemstones, size definitely isn’t everything.  

New Engagement Ring Trends

Minimalist: The minimalist trend continues to rise and isn’t going away anytime soon. Perfect for the bride who doesn’t wear a lot of jewelry, pair a beautiful stone with a skinny band for a minimalist and timeless, yet trendy look. 

Oval: shaped diamonds have been popular and continue to be on the rise. They’re the perfect mix of classic and trends. Oval diamonds elongate the finger and show their carat weight very well. 

Unique: If you like to feel one of a kind, alternative  bridal styles are contemporary and fun. From mixed metals, to a wide band with accent gemstones, there are many avenues to go down if you want to stand out. 

Skinny Bands: Another style on the rise are super skinny bands- at about 1.5mm. The delicate band is classic but with a modern edge and makes the diamond appear larger. 

Hidden Halos: These basically mean decorating a structural part of the existing ring. Hidden halos don’t affect the look as much as a typical halo would, but they add extra sparkle from the side. 

Vintage: Just like vintage and up-cycled wedding dresses are set to be a 2021 trend, vintage engagement rings are coming right along for the ride. We love Art Deco rings and have a wide selection of different styles. 

Multiple Stones: When Megan Markle upgraded her solitaire to a three stone engagement ring, the trend took off. The stones can be the same or different sizes to really stand out. 

Statement & Multiple Wedding Bands: Wearing multiple bands with different designs is a major jewelry trend right now, so there’s no reason this can’t be applied to bridal rings. Eternity bands symbolize everlasting love, making them very meaningful. 

Colored Diamonds & Gemstones: For the bride who wants to stand out, colored gemstones will allow you to express your creativity. Rubies, emeralds and sapphires to name a few, have been getting more and more popular.
